    Default Crystallized honey and vendors

    For those of of you who sell honey through other vendors - what do you do when their honey crystallizes? It seems to be doing that a whole lot earlier this year. We've been taking it back and putting it in our hot box to reliquify. I can see this becoming an unworkable solution.

    ....we deal with this by delivering the honey already crystallized.

    When I have honey that is starting to turn, or that has, I cream it (as deknow indicates) it sells better than my standard liquid wildflower. If you put it in glass or clear plastic be prepared to explain the "white crystal" streaks in it.

    For vendors, I would swap it out and then cream it.

    The consumer is a fickle beast.....Honey in a grocery store is expected to be liquid but in a health food store the customer is suspicious unless it is crystallized.

    The honey that We sell crystalizes readily on its own. We do nothing to encourage crystalization. We do not cream our honey.

    Walter T Kelly sells labels about Honey crystalizing. I put one on every container that I sell. Get one jump ahead of the complaint. Here is the link;
